Love cannot exist anywhere in our lives if we do not love the present moment—this ongoing, uninterrupted, eternal holy instant.
If I am here but want to be there, or if I am longing for the past or hoping for the future, I am withdrawing my attention from the field where all of life exists—the only place it ever has or ever will, now.
Right now, so many people are suffering because of a thought system that is having them resist or reject life now. They are withdrawing into the dreams and fears about the future. They are living to keep the regrets and obligations of the past real. Their minds are scattered everywhere but here.
What does exist is now. Can you love yourself now, and then extend that love to everything and everyone in your field of awareness? Stay there. Keep going. Thoughts that pull you away from now—loveless, fearful thoughts—are thoughts about non-reality. Only this moment is real, and it is always this moment. Only love is real, all else is error.
To bring love and awareness into the present moment is to pay attention to how you feel. It is to do the things that need doing, but absent of desperation or panic.
See the present moment with love. Bring unconditional love to who you see, what you find, and to what goes on here. This is how problems are solved, progress is made, love is honored, and life becomes increasingly abundant.

Love cannot exist anywhere in our lives if we do not love the present moment—this ongoing, uninterrupted, eternal holy instant.
Who would accept a way of thinking in which love is feared, guilt is real, suffering is unavoidable, and joy is postponed? Why would anyone choose darkness after having been shown the light?
The underlying belief which makes the postponement of joy possible is this: sacrifice is necessary now because lasting happiness will be yours someday. This, the world celebrates as hope. Let us look at hope.
If you are already spiritually awakened, then hope is a meaningless concept. What is hope for when salvation has already arrived? But continue to rely upon the ego and all you have is hope because, surely, what you want has yet to arrive.
Most people spend their whole life waiting, seeking, hoping but never reaching the destination of perfect and lasting joy. Years can go by in sacrifice, still decades more, and yet the reward for all this sacrifice never quite arrives. You can place the blame on yourself for not working hard enough, or you can blame the world for its unfairness, but the truth is elsewhere: you are seeking salvation in false idols—where it cannot be found.
Rather than looking honestly at this, you may continue to sacrifice feeling good now for a fantasy of the future. You may avoid love now for the purpose of finding true love. You may ignore spiritual teachings, meditation, and a healthy way of living because you are too busy becoming sick at the altar of the future. You may live dishonestly to preserve a relationship that is making you both miserable. You may read the news each day waiting for the world to be declared safe. You may put off doing what inspires you because it is impractical at the moment. Still, you keep hoping that someday, somehow, all your dreams will come true and your life will be wonderful. How so?
A better future doesn’t exist, but a better present does. Patience isn’t a state of waiting; rather a superior way of being and doing. Love isn’t something you are working toward; it is there each moment you decide for it. Rest isn’t found in sleeping; rather, from waking. Joy is detached from external circumstance and is found in freedom.
What you have been hoping for can only be yours now and requires only a real decision for it.
It is a type of mental illness so common it seems normal. It is a thought system that tells you to do everything you do not want to do now, so that someday you will be able to live the way you want.
While your thoughts might tell you otherwise, the way you live now is the way that you live. How you are now is how you are. Your relationships now? Your skills and talents? How you feel? Who and how you love now? This is all that is real about your life, and it is all here now.
Then there are those thoughts of sacrifice telling you to ignore how you feel. Pay no attention to your intuition. Your inner world—the real you—it isn’t real, right? What matters is what the world can offer if you meet its demands. Who planted these thoughts in you? What was the intention if not to control? Are those promises even true?
What about those fearful thoughts to never trust anyone? To fight for what is yours or you will have nothing. Be careful. Be normal. Don’t try anything new or crazy. Is fear not paralysis, and does paralysis not hold you back from a more abundant, better reality now?
So many people are stuck in these thought patterns—waiting for and expecting a better future that doesn’t come. But here—in the present moment—there is so little enjoyment, little adventure, shallow connections, no real or happy learning, poor health, poor understanding of reality, no real values. Tragically, dreams of future abundance and the associated thought patterns cause a lack of abundance now.
Do not sacrifice being alive to achieve a perfect future. Love who you love now, even if you don’t know about your future with the person. Have kids when you feel the desire, even if you don’t have the perfect house or financial situation. Start your dream company now, even if you don’t feel ready. Go on that trip now, even if it makes you nervous. Say how you feel now, even if you don’t know how people will respond. Follow your intuition and pay attention to how you feel—the external world will adjust.
When you stop living for the future, you begin to realize that you don’t have to sacrifice the present moment to be successful, to earn a living, or to be a great partner or parent. In the present moment, you enjoy engaging in your responsibilities—responsibilities that you choose to take on for reasons you understand—and you are better at everything. You are focused, open, creative, friendly, and unafraid to take the healthy risks others shy away from.
The irony is this: when you learn to stop living for the future, your life becomes even better than whatever future you imagined. Everything becomes clear. Everything about your life seems designed perfectly for you—the real you. But this is only accessible for those willing to humble the mind and spiritually awaken. There are many books and guides who can show you the way and it is all real.
Stop trying to control. Let go of fixed plans and concepts, and the world will govern itself. (Tao Te Ching, 57)
However noble our intentions may be or how true our opinions may seem, the line is crossed the instant we try to impose our will upon another. Everyone already has limitless power, and it rests in our ability to think, to feel, to express ourselves fully and do as we please. If we happen to speak and live the truth, others will follow willingly and enthusiastically.
Oftentimes, however, we get frustrated when others fail to share our intentions or agree with our opinions. Rather than respecting those differences and honoring free will, we may then wish to impose our will and to control others. We may even adopt political ideologies which restrict personal liberty. So sure of our fixed plans and concepts, we may even justify or applaud heavy-handed politicians who brutally impose severe limits on freedom.
But harmony and balance is impossible so long as anyone is attempting to control anyone else. The world becomes blocked. Nothing works quite right, and the reason is that so many fixed plans and concepts are being imposed upon people despite our God-given, inalienable right to exercise free will.
Everything that makes life worth living flows from truth, beauty and freedom. The argument against freedom is the opposite of wisdom. What we need, want and desire on the deepest level arises from the basic freedom to be who we are, unrestricted. Can we not allow one another the right to speak our truths and to live as we choose?
No one recognizes their own insane beliefs and continues on with them.
Madness requires belief that our mind's ideas are correct and true.
Wisdom requires overcoming faith in, and identity with, your own stream of thought. It isn't true. It isn't you. Love, honesty, freedom, presence, the force of life itself, consciousness is real. Not thought forms.
One of the lessons of the world is to look at conflict in terms of there being a winner and a loser. In any conflict, we are taught to identify with and fight for one of two opposing sides—fearing all the while that the other side will win.
Reality, however, is such that only illusion can be in conflict. Truth—the reality of the situation, the equilibrium, the path of no resistance—is absent of conflict. When two opposing parties both see and accept the truth, conflict disappears. Everybody wins. Absent of this, there can be no real victory.
It may appear that arguments and wars can be won by force. All throughout history, that’s how our foolish leaders have approached it. In the old winner / loser mindset, one side dominates, the other forfeits, and the victor dishonestly defines reality until the cycle repeats. This is precisely the model that, after thousands of years, has made an entire world that is based on fiction, illusion, unreality.
Then, one day about two years ago, COVID-19 was unleashed. Enter the Great Awakening—the Great War to End Illusion. The pandemic was unleashed because, prior to this, the Deep State / Cabal / Ruling Elite were attacked. What the media has not told us is that many of them were taken out at the highest level in a series of covert operations. COVID was the establishment’s response—their attempt to maintain control through the typical use of force, propaganda, lies, threats, fearmongering, corruption, etc.
The other side, you can call them the white hats or good guys, understood that the goal wasn’t to prevail through force; rather, to allow the effortless power of truth. What has been slowly revealed is the ugly truth of our healthcare system, big pharma, the propaganda in the media, the corruption in our governments, the sick experiments taking place in labs around the world—and how all these institutions were working together against human rights in lockstep.
The people we once trusted showed us their true colors. Even the sports leagues, the big brands, school, all of culture was exposed as corruptible and not exactly real. It was all turned off in an instant, and our lives shifted toward that which is real: loved ones, nature, spirituality, health, traditions, creativity, etc. So much pain and suffering society has thrown on us, but now we know what is real about life.
Russia’s operation in Ukraine isn’t really intended to conquer a land and a people; rather, to further expose the truth about the Deep State corruption, the global mafia that has been in charge there for so long. Far more important, this operation exposed the truth about how the SWIFT system has been used to threaten and control countries, how large corporations are bullying people and governments to achieve their agendas. Now we understand how the whole damn system has been working for our entire lives.
This is, indeed, the Great Awakening—an ongoing crisis to expose truth. Wherever any ugly truth is exposed, crisis always ensues for a time. After that, reality emerges. There are still a few more chapters in the Great Awakening. There is more light to be shone where there was once darkness and deceit. The goal is not world domination. To the contrary, the goal is that when all the sick and twisted illusion is exposed, we are left with a world based upon reality, truth, honesty, love, joy, fairness, and freedom. Nothing can stop what is coming.
When life comes to a point that a relationship or situation isn’t working—when it has become so toxic that it becomes impossible to go on—crisis ensues, and dramatic change is required. The challenge, in such a situation, is that our survival instinct tells us to continue holding on to the old situation. We tell ourselves to “try to make it work for just a little while longer. Maybe it will get better. It’s not the bad.”
Yet, by refusing to look squarely at the truth of a toxic situation, by resisting the necessary change, things only get worse. Suffering continues to escalate. Fear. Stress. It is like trying to hold back a dam that is breaking. Eventually it becomes impossible, and we are swept away in the flood of reality.
We are all in a terrible situation; a toxic relationship with the systems that govern our societies and with the people behind them who have been committing atrocities. We have been muzzled, threatened, and made to constantly fear, for two years, over a common cold. We are robbed through taxes that are used only to enrich the very same people in charge. We are censored. We are always worrying about money while those in charge print as much as they want for themselves.
They offer us only crap entertainment and miseducation, combined with medicine and food that make us sick—all while the system they put into place is slowly destroying the beautiful natural world we enjoy and depend upon. We know that drastic change is required. What we didn’t know is that it is coming.
The days ahead will shock anyone who hasn’t already awakened to what’s going on behind the scenes. The whole system is coming down. In it’s place, a new world is being offered to those of us who accept it. So many credible sources (the ones who have gotten every other “conspiracy” right again and again) have confirmed that it is a world with debt forgiveness, no income tax, prosperity for all, freedom and honesty, as well as an incorruptible financial system. It is a world of free energy, health care that heals—a great unleashing of all the technologies that those who have abused us have been holding back.
Prepare to encounter the unimaginable. Just when you think it is all over, it all begins. Facing the truth about things isn’t easy for any of us, but now there is no other choice. My awakening started after 9/11, and I have lived the past 20 years in a world that I have seen for what it is. All the while, I have known how completely wrong, sick, dishonest and evil the whole system is. I never dreamed of seeing the day when it all changes.
I don’t believe the new world will be perfect. Of course not, that’s not what this life is. Life is always going to be filled with enormous challenges, worries, ups and downs, but that’s what we are here for. But in the new world, we will be free to grow, to explore, to experience life as free people (rather than as slaves).
While I know this is a difficult time, which will only become unimaginably more so in an instant, I also know that this was a war that had to be waged. There was no path forward in the direction we were headed. We can be eternally grateful for the good guys who have just about completed the process of flipping the world, saving our lives from one of slavery, despair, or worse.
When the big events start happening, try to embrace it. Accept it rather than resisting. Let everything go that wasn’t really working before. Trust. Want truth. Want freedom. Know that love always prevails and, no matter what, live in and enjoy the present moment—where you are eternally safe and joyful no matter what happens in the world.
What if, within you, was the cure to all the problems of the world you think you see?
What if the truth about you is that you are pure love and perfectly lovable?
What if your intuition, your inner voice was the truth and the lessons of the world lies?
What if you looked within, and found the real source of love?
What if you found that you only mean well and are only good?
What if you looked within and found that you have the power to solve every problem?
What if you found that the real you is sinless?
What if you looked within and found nothing to feel guilty or ashamed of?
What if you realized that you are not to blame for the attacks, disappointment, and shaming others have projected upon you?
What if, by looking within, you found that the problem all along was the fear to truly look within?
What if you only looked within, in search of your pure love, your perfect honesty, your need for freedom?
What if, when you find it, you decide for this to become your only reality?
What if you then looked within your brother, your sister, everyone you see in the same way?
When you are afraid, you cannot love. You may say, “I love you, but I am afraid of…”. No matter how this sentence ends, the truth is that when you choose to obey your fears, you are deciding against love and making it impossible to be loved.
A grandparent may choose not to take a flight to visit family for fear of traveling. In such a case, the fear to fly is more important, more real than any supposed love for family. Love is being withheld and sacrificed to fear. On a first date, you might be afraid to speak your whole truth and just be yourself. Or you might be afraid of having your heart broken, so you hold back in your openness and trust. Once again, this is a choice for fear—which makes love impossible. Similarly, a true romance may be kept hidden for fear of judgment; but if this fear isn’t overcome, real love is impossible.
Nothing about this choice between love and fear is theoretical. There are no exceptions and there is no in-between. Where there is fear about anything in your life, there is not love. Fear is a choice for paralysis, stress, misery, sickness, death, and lack. It is an embrace of dishonesty, depression, and slavery. Love, on the other hand, is inspiration, creativity, energy, and the experience of joy, bliss, beauty, and abundance.
The battle in the world right now is between love and fear. This battle is being waged within the inner dimension of every person alive. In other words, it is merely a choice. Choose fear, you suffer as a slave. Choose love, you are free as spirit.
Healing is the undoing of fear through the recognition of its unreality. This is awakening, becoming spiritually conscious…salvation.
“You do not really want the world you see, for it has disappointed you since time began.” You cannot see the world and at the same time see the spiritual reality. There is a choice: one must be made real and the other denied. One contains everything you want, the other everything you do not want.
When you allow pollution to come into your awareness—whether it be the fear-mongering of the government, the corporate media, the deception of advertising, or negative ideas and conversations—you are pulled away from joy, which is your natural state of being. What you give your attention to must not pull you away from joy, from an underlying sense of ease, from the state where there is calm and peace within. When it does pull you away, you can stop, change course, do a meditation, take a nap, you can do something that makes you feel good and then start again. This is how real problems are solved and progress is made.
Anything done, said, or created when you don’t feel good is a miscreation. All the ugliness of this world was miscreated by people who were detached from the natural state of joy within. All that ugliness cannot be fought from a place of ugliness, but it can be ignored in bliss and left to die.
I do not give any attention or reality to error. I do not debate. I do not get outraged. I am not afraid—for this would make error seem real, to give it power it does not have, and to pull me away from joy. Spiritual vision looks within to recognize and embrace reality, and my reality is identical to yours if you will do the same. It is our choice for love.
Our lives are shaped by where we put our attention. Find the source of love within, where you remember perfectly well that you are innocent and complete. Feel your positive energy growing. Stay connected to this place in all your thinking and doing, ignoring all else. The reality of love, the only reality, is the only power, the energy of life itself, which contains everything you want within it.
